Formula Grant

Overview

Grant Description
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) is applying for $115,633,600 in FFY2022 Section 5307 Urbanized Area Formula Program funds. These funds will be used for the replacement of the Bladensburg and Northern Bus Garages, as well as the implementation of the Rail Station Revitalization Program.

WMATA's Rail Station Revitalization Program satisfies the requirement of spending 0.75% of Section 5307 funds towards safety improvements. This request is consistent with the agreed suballocation of funds among the three recipients within the Urbanized Area (UZA 8) for the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland. WMATA's split letter is attached to this application.

It is important to note that these funds require a 20% local match, totaling $28,908,400. The non-federal share will be provided by the District of Columbia, the State of Maryland, and participating jurisdictions in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This application will be amended in future fiscal years to support the continuation of these projects.

The purpose of this award is to support WMATA's Capital Improvement Program for FY2023 and ongoing work for the reconstruction of the Bladensburg and Northern Bus Garages, as well as the development of a Rail Station Revitalization Program.

The activities to be performed include the reconstruction of the Bladensburg Bus Garage, reconstruction of the Northern Bus Garage, and the design engineering and implementation of the Rail Station Modernization Program. The expected outcome is for WMATA to provide a safe and reliable rail transit system for its customers and employees, as well as modern operational facilities for maintaining assets and improvements to rail stations for customer and operational safety.

The intended beneficiaries of WMATA's projects are WMATA employees and customers who commute within or connect to public transit within the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland region.
